Meditation & Conversation
Meditation, Readings, and Sharing.
Welcome to a new weekly group at LRY.
This group provides an opportunity for our vibrant community to come together, practice meditation, and discuss inspiring books. Each month we choose a text to work with. Each meeting begins with meditation instruction and practice. After that, there will is a reading from the text followed by a group discussion.
The readings reflect the common theme of cultivating our highest selves for the purpose of personal and collective healing, and awakening. We draw from Buddhist, Yogic, and other contemplative traditions, as well as contemporary spiritual writings. Participants are invited to suggest books, and to co-create the structure and process of the group.
